Vegan Pesto!

October 1 Rapallo, Italy   Gary’s feeling better but still not quite his best. We were supposed to take a trip to Lavagna today with his cousin Vittorio. Vittorio lives and works there and he wanted to show us his ‘hood. Gary was disappointed not to go but thought it best to lay low for…

Acai bowl

September 29, 30 Rapallo, Italy It’s rare that Gary is under the weather. Today he woke up feeling “blech” and said he’d like to stay inside our room which had a beautiful view overlooking the Ligurian Sea. I ventured out on my own. I started by ordering more tea at the front desk, which was…

Tea Service

September 28 Rapallo, Italy   It’s a good day to relax. We got up late. I ordered some hot tea to have in the room. We got up to go for a stroll. I needed some kind of skin moisturizer. Not an easy thing to find in this small, Italian town. We stopped by La…

Vegan Ice Cream

September 26, 2022 Rapallo   We arrived two nights ago and I am still in awe of the location of our hotel, right on the coast of the Ligurian Sea.   Today we are walking to Portofino. Gary’s sister Deb told us about it. We could walk the whole way or take a ferry. She…

What Vegans Eat – Travel Edition: RAPALLO, Day 9


September 25, 2022 Rapallo This was a very, very special day. And because there was so much activity and love and excitement, I forgot to take pictures of our very special meal. Scusi!

Snack on the TGV 10:23

September 24, 2022 Paris Just before leaving our hotel we stopped at a Monop’, a small grocery chain that is part of the Monoprix department stores around France.

WHAT VEGANS EAT – Travel Edition: PARIS Day 7


September 23, 2022 After another “grace matinée” we got up in the afternoon and walked down the Rue du Faubourg Montmartre in the direction of the Seine. It’s our museum day.   Whether in a museum or painted on a wall on the street, we appreciate art.   It was recommended to not miss the…
